I thought I was closer than ever and yet here I am, falling back to the start, falling back to your arms.
Why does life ride like a roller coaster? Because no matter how much you open my eyes to your love, sin never loses its appeal.
My God, the very Spirit of God lives within me. But that is just it: He lives within me.
Though I am being made righteous each morning, my days are filled with shortcomings.
I cannot do it. I cannot win this ongoing fight alone.
I run along beaches of grace only to find myself treading deep waters of temptation.
God, I know what I desire: it’s not good for me and it’s not good for others.
But God, I know what you desire is good for me and it is good for others.
I cannot do this alone. The battle wages through the dusk and into the dawn.
I have lost sight of my Maker. I have disregarded my Foundation.
And here I am.
Back to the start. Back to your arms.
Father, pick me up and carry me through the night. For tomorrow is a new day and I am precious in your sight.
